Asheville Friends of Astrology will meet on Friday, October 19 at 7pm in the community room at Earth Fare Westgate. Johnny Barnett will speak on Chakras, Mythology and Astrological Symbolism. Johnny will lead us on an empowering and mind-opening journey through our energetic or “Spiritual” anatomy — symbolized by the 7 Chakras — which guides us towards a life of meaning, purpose, love and fulfillment. Astrologers will be re-introduced to the Hermetic correspondence of Planets to Chakras- allowing them to expand their astrological vocabulary and practice. Astrologers and non-astrologers alike will be treated to a generous helping of esoteric knowledge and a sprinkle of contemporary culture to help bring our astrological role-models — the ancient characters of Greek Mythology — into the present day. Add in a strong dose of insight from modern authors including Eckhart Tolle and Don Miguel Ruiz and you will find your heart and mind opened to the Spiritual Reality that lies just beneath the surface of our modern world — ready to be re-discovered, celebrated and consciously embodied by each and every one of us!
Johnny has been a practicing Astrologer for over 26 years. His unique astrological perspective is based upon the relationship between the 7 planets of classical astrology and the 7 Chakras–thus Chakraology – an embracing of the Hermetic wisdom “as without, so within”. He draws upon his complementary studies in symbolism, mythology, Jungian psychology, physics and the works of contemporary and recent thinkers such as Eckhart Tolle and Joseph Campbell, as well as his experiences as a father, husband, entrepreneur, community activist and musician to inform his work. Johnny currently travels the US teaching Chakraology classes and doing private astrological readings. See more on his website, http://chakraology.org/
